Associate Consultant (Rotterdam Office) internship application

OC&C Strategy Consultants is a global strategy boutique, advising top management of leading companies and institutions on their strategic issues. In the Netherlands we work from Rotterdam with approximately 50 employees and focus mainly on the Private Equity, Retail, FMCG and Transport, Travel & Leisure sectors. This work is carried out by our consultants, for which position we recruit continuously.

An associate internship at OC&C offers students that (almost) completed their university study the opportunity to work as a consultant at a strategy consultancy firm.

From day one, you will be part of a real project team and be responsible for tackling exciting and complicated problems to help our clients. Your role as an Associate Intern will be dependent on what is needed for the specific project. It can vary between conducting interviews, performing analyses or developing client output. In any case, you will be fully part of the project team and directly exposed to our investor and corporate clients across a range of sectors and geographies.

To make sure you are fully equipped, you will receive a week-long induction where you will have training in the consulting skills. In addition, you will participate in our regular training programs, experience continuous on-the-job training and receive formal feedback after every project. Over eight to twelve weeks you will be part of multiple project teams, giving you an opportunity to become very familiar with what it means to work in strategy consultancy and experience the culture at OC&C.

Working in small teams means you will have exposure to all parts of the project and a chance to work directly with our consultants and partners. You will be part of the office and participate in all office activities, including social and networking events.


We are looking for candidates with:

• An excellent academic background; you are currently achieving a high level of academic achievement at University.

• Clear and creative thinking; who love a challenge and enjoy working on a team.

• Strong analytical skills.

• Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

• Professional approach and attitude.

At OC&C we are committed to fostering an inclusive culture in which people of all backgrounds can thrive. We encourage applications from all, regardless of age, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, transgender status, disability, marital status, pregnancy or maternity, religion or belief, race or ethnic origin, and socioeconomic background. We also have a number of staff network groups which actively support the inclusion of all of our colleagues in the firm.

Sinds 1987 onderscheidt OC&C zich als strategiefirma door een focus op puur strategieadvies. Het team beantwoordt complexe vragen op het gebied van bedrijf-, overname- en portfoliostrategie. Wij adviseren cliënten in allerlei sectoren, van participatiemaatschappijen tot bedrijven in o.a. detailhandel, dienstverlening en technologie. Samenwerking met de andere 11 OC&C-kantoren wereldwijd wordt vaak gezocht om de interessantste cliënten te bedienen en consultants de beste leerervaring te bieden.
